Cameroon vs. King Pop Love

Post  Yakima Canutt on Fri Aug 03, 2012 4:08 pm

Wan be Starting Something. The song is played in the key of E Major. The song is moderately bright and its metronome is 122 beats per minute. The song has a basic sequence of D/E–E–D/E–E as its chord progression. The coda at the end of the song comes directly from Cameroonian saxophonist Manu Dibango's 1972 disco song "Soul Makossa". The coda is "Mama-say mama-sah ma-ma-coo-sah". Makossa is a Cameroonian music genre and dance. Dibango sued Jackson and settled out of court for one million French francs, agreeing thereby to waive future rights to this recording but not future use of the material.

Interesting settlement. Dibango waves future rights to the recording, but not future use of the material. Shocked

Does that mean that in the future the tune is pretty much up for grabs?

If so, probably a good thing--let the people have muzick.
